Nighttime Pickleball Class to Be Offered in SC

San Clemente resident Raudel Barba will be offering instructional classes on how to play the sport of pickleball on Wednesday nights. Barba, who offers drop-in classes during the day, said this class is geared toward interested adults who would like to get a workout in after work and learn how to play the popular sport.

Pickleball resembles tennis. It is a racket sport that features singles or doubles teams volleying a plastic ball back and forth over a low net on a tennis surface. Pickleball courts are about half the size of a regulation tennis court.

Barba has been offering pickleball classes through the City of San Clemente Parks and Recreation department for several years.

Those interested in joining Barba’s new class will learn the basics and the rules of the game. Cost for four classes is $60. Cost to attend one class is $25.

The location and exact dates of the class is still being finalized, Barba said. For more information, contact Barba at
